Design Concept

This is one of a series of quilts, exploring the illusion of overlapping transparent triangles. The triangles were made from strips of hand dyed fabric, dyed in gradations. Each triangle was pieced separately and then cut into horizontal strips. The strips of the two triangles were alternated when they were sewn back together. This creates the illusion of more than one triangle occupying the same space. A narrow border of black surrounds the center triangles, followed by a wider border of dye painted fabric in rainbow colors. A binding of solid black surrounds the composition. In contrast to the geometry of the pieced design, the quilting was done in a freeform, swirling, organic design.
